This is a Minnesota Local news story but watch the GoPro fly off the reporters helmet at 1:10 when the enter a fast turn!
lol...Another good video. I'm with you, they gave her a dorky looking helment but no eye protection. Maybe it's a TV thing about eye contact.
Hope Polaris' definition of "really, really fast...crazy fast" is the same as mine.
Minnesota doesn't have a helmet law, and you only need eye protection if you ride without an approved "windscreen", the windshield on the SS would qualify. My brother got out of a "no eye protection" ticket on is GSXR-750 because the owners manual refers to the little windshield as a "protective windscreen".Another good video. I'm with you, they gave her a dorky looking helment but no eye protection. Maybe it's a TV thing about eye contact.
I remember reading or watching a video with the Polaris Rep talking about this, I can't seem to find it right now.sales pitching how "crazy fast" it is without talking the actual numbers is because you don't know your product or don't want people to know your product. It drives me nuts.
It is certain that this will be an amazing experience for those who have never had this type of vehicle and the journalist seems to be a little lady who has never had this kind of experience on a track before that day!I remember reading or watching a video with the Polaris Rep talking about this, I can't seem to find it right now.
Basically Polaris says the reason for not sharing the 0-60 or top speed numbers are that they don't want it to be about the "numbers". They claim the Slingshot is unlike anything you have ever experienced and the numbers won't matter. By the reaction of this reporter and everyone else that seems to ride in a Slingshot I am really starting to believe them. The reporters says " I don't know if I've ever felt so alive", that is a pretty amazing reaction! Or her husband really sucks....
There's always got a situation where you think: I wish I had more power ... even in a T-Rex I made this reflection! lolI agree feel will be the ultimate driver. I am not a paper stat buyer as I bought a miata over a mustang gt and we all know which is faster both in the straights and round a track. I just dont want to eventually finding myself putting the pedal to the floor and going "man, i wish i had more power" which is something that eventually happened in the miata as it aged.
